Joe Biden is doing everything he can to distract voters from his Presidency’s failures.
This is why Joe Biden just picked another fight with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
But Ron DeSantis whacked Joe Biden with a COVID gut-punch he never saw coming.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is wildly popular after he resisted mask and vaccine mandates from the beginning of the pandemic.
And DeSantis just announced a major deal Biden never saw coming.
Not only did he resist the mandates, but DeSantis ensured masks and vaccines would remain optional in Florida while also promoting monoclonal antibodies as an effective early treatment.
As a result, there are now fewer Floridians entering the hospital than before.
And COVID cases have plummeted for two weeks in a row.
Of course, this makes Joe Biden look bad given how he accused DeSantis for enabling COVID to spread by resisting the mandates.
And now, Joe Biden is determined to punish DeSantis, along with six other Republican-led states, by blocking them from receiving shipments of the lifesaving monoclonal antibodies.
Seriously @PressSec? “That is not accurate”?
Then explain why our supply has been cut from 72,000 to 30,950 treatments per week.
I’ll wait. But Floridians who have COVID can’t. https://t.co/H5a9e4r3uc

Biden probably thinks nothing of the potential harm to residents of Florida and other red states and that his retaliation against his political opponents is as legitimate as drone-striking an American ally and his children before leaving Afghanistan.
But it only serves to demonstrate once again how cruel and terrible the President truly is.
Fortunately, DeSantis is fighting back.
Ron DeSantis just announced he made his own deal with GlaxoSmithKline to purchase their version of the monoclonal antibodies Joe Biden doesn’t want them to have.
“What I am doing though, is we’re going to try to cover the bases. I had a call yesterday with GlaxoSmithKline executives about their new monoclonal antibody… Sotrovimab was given EUA, I believe in May. So the Eli Lily one, which is kind of now coming back, but the Regeneron, that was at the end of 2020. Sotrovimab was given EUA in May. The clinical data on that was even better than the clinical data on the Regeneron, 85% reduction in hospitalizations,” DeSantis told reporters.
